Six Generations on the Farm and Counting

This Friday, meet Mark Nieman, a fourth-generation farmer in Nortonville, Kansas, keeping the family’s farming tradition alive. Mark runs the 620-acre corn, soybean, alfalfa and livestock farm in northeastern Kansas, which includes the 80 acres his great grandfather bought back in 1905 when he emigrated from Germany. Learn how Mark partnered with USDA to grow, enhance and protect his farm for the next generation of Niemans.
